Global Fund Audit Shows Ugandan Government Failed To Spend Grants On HIV Treatment

An audit by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, published on Friday, said millions of dollars remained unspent even though drug shortages were common in health centers. For a country often pleading limited resources for providing decent health care, the findings suggest that a big part of the problem could be paucity of smart governance…” (Kavuma, 3/2).
